Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the moment George Washington assumed the presidency, the world watched, and in the aftermath of the Cold War, the U.S. president has been considered the most powerful leader on Earth. This innovative new series looks at the American presidents from a global perspective. Written at the 6th- through 8th-grade reading level, entries feature biographical information and a narrative explanation of the major world events with which American presidents have grappled.

Now more than ever, the nations of the world are part of one community. Modern transportation, communication, and economic interdependence mean that every country is connected to the others. George W. Bush's War on Terrorism is a global effort, and America's dealings with the Middle East are felt throughout the world. The president of the United States has never simply been a national figure. Lincoln's decision to suppress the South in 1861 not only affected the economic markets of Europe, but also ultimately changed the way the world thought of about slavery and democracy. Would Hitler have won without FDR leading America into war? What if Truman hadn't dropped the bomb? From the moment George Washington assumed the presidency, the world watched, and in the aftermath of the Cold War, the U.S. president has been considered the most powerful leader on Earth. This innovative new set looks at the American presidents from a global perspective. Arranged chronologically from Washington to G. W. Bush, entries feature biographical information and a narrative explanation of major world events that American presidents have grappled with.

Included are:

• Details of the event

• The president's views of the event

Book News Annotation:

The five volumes of this set, suitable for junior high to high school students, provide profiles of the issues and events that marked the terms of the American presidents. Each chapter provides a short biography of the president, his political career and influences, the story of his election, and discussion of domestic and foreign policy. Larger events occurring at home and abroad are considered with regard to their effect on the presidency. The volumes begin with George Washington and continue through George W. Bush and the awarding of the Nobel peace prize to Jimmy Carter. The volumes include many b&w photos, inset boxes with profiles of significant figures and events, and frequent "fast fact" boxes with memorable snippets of information. Each volume includes a glossary of terms. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
